Special Blog Post! My new book is available on pre-order now! :)
So excited to share with you that I couldn't wait until Sunday!
My newest book, Another Outer Banks Christmas, is available for pre-order now and will release this weekend. So, Sunday would have been too late to anticipate!
A little behind-the-scenes:
After my first novella, Christmas Confusion, was accepted for publication, I hurried and wrote a sequel. But that sequel was the full-length novel, Sweet Summer, and my publisher didn't have a slot for that book in 2020. I didn't wait a whole year to publish again so I hurriedly wrote, Christmas on Ocracoke.
Christmas on Ocracoke was set on Ocracoke Island (and Hatteras) after Hurricane Dorian had devastated much of that small island. I'd fallen in love with that place--each island so different from my own South Carolina beaches--seemingly so far from the rest of the country.
The characters in this novella are only tangentially related to the characters in Ocracoke, but they are there--going to church together and eating lunch afterwards and getting married. In fact, there is a full-length book in between waiting to see the world. Stay tuned!
But, for now, Another Outer Banks Christmas has a story I love...a meddling grandfather, a tough firefighter/EMT that turns out to not be so tough after all, and the daughter of a missionary who really wants a place to call home.
Back Cover Blurb:
As the daughter of missionaries, Kerrie Alexander has lived on Hatteras—an island in the Outer Banks—longer than any other place she’s been. When her parents inform her the family is slotted to go overseas again, she balks. Her life on the island—her job, her friends, even the handsome hero in her Sunday School class—makes her want to put down roots. But to do so, she’ll need to find a place to live, face being on her own separated from any close family—something she’s never done before.
Firefighter and EMT Wade Hampton can face pretty much any emergency, except his matchmaking grandpa threatening him with disinheritance if Wade doesn’t get married in just three months. Not that Wade objects to the idea of marriage, but how does a guy who has no problem running into burning buildings find the courage to ask a girl like Kerrie out for a date? She’s a role model for everything good, and he comes from a rough and broken home. Not to mention, Christmas is right around the corner!
